• Multi-Robot-Cell-System

    At Empire we begin with building the finest blast and recovery systems and integrate robots to them. Since 1987 Empire Abrasive Equipment has successfully integrated commercially available robots into a variety of pre-engineered robotic blast cells, customized robotic blast systems and robotic blast rooms. Our goal is to consistently deliver customers with robot blasting technologies that enable efficient, quiet and clean robotic blasting solutions for surface preparation and peening applications.

    Empire is a Fanuc Authorized Integrator, Kuka Official System Partner, ABB Robotics Authorized Partner, Yaskawa Motoman Strategic Partner, and Robotmaster CAD/CAM software integrator. Working together with our strategic partners we provide integrated robotic air-blast solutions for aerospace, transport, energy, gas & Oil, high technology, military, medical and industrial / consumer manufacturing markets.

    To meet evolving requirements and challenges our growing portfolio of robotic blast system optional features include: servo controlled auxiliary axis, vision systems, off-line programming, coordinated part manipulation, end-effectors for part manipulation, custom part fixturing, unified HMI controls for data collection, RFID/Barcode scanners, Laser Scanners, Ethernet communication, IOT capable remote access routers for data collection and monitoring.

  • RBT36-F

    RBT36-F Robotic Blasting Cell

    • Advanced Automation
    • High-Efficiency Blast and Reclaim
    • Intelligent Blasting, Smartly Priced
    Empire's new RBT36-F robotic pressure-blast system opens the door for many firms to cash in on the benefits of high precision air blasting. Capable of processing parts up to 12 inches in diameter by 12 inches tall, the RBT36-F employs a Fanuc 6-axis robot to control nozzle movement plus a DC or Servo drive to control part movement, enabling users to assure the quality control and deliver the process validation so often required by today's aerospace, automotive and medical-equipment sectors.

    In addition to helping customers control quality, the RBT36-F reduces the consumption of blast media, energy, floor space and raw materials while boosting the speed, flexibility and yield of manufacturing processes. In short, the system does more with less, contributing to a better bottom line.

    The RBT36-F includes dust collection, media reclamation, controls - all the hardware and software required for robotic blasting at standard automation pricing.

    In addition to the RBT36-F, Empire produces a larger version of this standard system for parts up to 24" x 24", as well as engineered robotic systems tailored to specific applications.
